Catching the Ravens Beyond Baltimore

Being a die-hard Ravens fan who lived in the Baltimore area for more than 40 years, I used to dread being out of town on game days because I never knew if I would be able to watch the game. Sometimes I would get lucky and find the game on TV in whatever city I was in. Most times though, I followed updates of the game online.
When I moved to Las Vegas a couple of years ago, I started searching for a place where Ravens fans gather and cheer on Flacco and company every week. I could watch the Ravens in any casino, but I wanted to be immersed in purple during the game.
Low and behold, I found a place that not only shows every Ravens game, they serve Maryland steamed crabs, too! It’s a place called the Crab Corner. When you walk through the doors, you would swear you were in Gardenville, or Bel Air, or Highlandtown – the place is decorated to the hilt with Os, Ravens and Terps memorabilia. They even have snowballs. It’s just what this homesick Ravens fan needed!
Now I want to hear from you.
Do you know of a great place beyond the Baltimore viewing area to watch the Ravens play? Maybe you discovered it by accident while traveling. Or maybe you moved to another city and found THE perfect place.
Whatever the case may be, one of our readers may have you to thank this weekend if they are forced to visit Aunt Betsy in Omaha, Nebraska when Ed Reed returns to Baltimore in red, white and blue.
So tell us, where can we watch our Ravens play outside of Baltimore? Bonus points if it’s a Ravens-themed establishment located in another AFC North city!
